Reviews

This 75-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Marije was wonderful. Marije is very knowledgeable, well organized, and fully present. The structure and sequence of the weekends was carefully and thoughtfully arranged in such a way that precisely on the last day the whole program literally jelled for me. The content and assignments insured us all to be a prepared teacher to walk off and teach with confidence. Highly recommend this class.
Everything about this experience, from Marije to the Won Dharma Center was absolute perfection. The Center is in such a lovely, peaceful place. Great walking trails. The food is quite delicious. The energy that surrounds you here puts you at ease immediately. Marije is so knowledgeable and gracious, with a calming presence she creates a retreat that is unforgettable. I have used many of the things I learned there since. Thank you Marije and Won Dharma for taking such good care of me:)
The yin yoga teacher training with Marije was an outstanding experience as it was both a very personal as well as insightful journey. Marije is very knowledgable and I truly enjoyed all the science-backed background information she offered as well as her skillful teaching which allowed us to teach with confidence by the end of this training.
A quiet, introspective weekend in a beautiful locale. Program was well organized and I came away with a better understanding of myself through meditation techniques and gentle movement. Accommodations were modern, clean, and spartan. Food was delicious. I would highly recommend this retreat weekend.
Marije is a very gifted teacher and this retreat was a profound experience in a short amount of time. Her scaffolding of silent meditations, yin yoga and walking meditations, along with a few "exercises" to increase our capacities to listen authentically to others, culminated in a gratitude exercise that was intense, personal, and deeply moving. Can not say enough positive things about having a chance to experience Marije as a teacher of yin, of meditation, and of becoming still and connecting both within and to others. Won Dharma is a sweet place, austere and modern, supporting contemplation. The food was simple but well prepared and the atmosphere supported us.
